Hugely disappointed by mediocre service and food.
Had expected great things following a successful meal earlier in the year.
On my last experience of this establishment i would avoid, plenty of better places to spend your money.

I've never had a plate of mussels with so few mussels in it. At least a third were empty. Another third were broken so bits of shell kept going in my mouth. The 'hand cut' chips were obviously out of a bag. House wine was £15. Overpriced. Then the waitress spilt cream sauce over my friend. Then the chef poured us each a lemoncillo (yuck), despite us telling him we didn't want it. Never left a restaurant so hungry. Will not be going back.

We went to Morello on 3rd May for our anniversary. We were visiting from Texas USA and we have told everyone about our wonderful experience. The fish was wonderful and the profiteroles were to die for. The staff were very professional and the host made the night possible for us; we were lucky enough to get a cancellation and he called to let us know. Thank you so much Morello we will be certain to visit you again on our next trip from Texas.

It's easy to be so taken in by the waiter's effusive, Anglo-Italian spiel as to believe that one has encountered a genuinely Italian restaurant experience here. We thought so too - until our food arrived.

The mushroom bruschetta was spoiled by an overpowering excess of pepper; the baked salmon was burnt, although its sauce was reasonable, and my mushroom risotto was plain beyond belief.

As for the lemon torte - to serve it with a pink ice cream of unidentifiable, "chemical" flavour is just plain wrong! Our tiramisu had a reasonable taste although sadly the ladyfinger biscuits seemed to be still as dry as the day they were made.

If these meals had been served in a less pretentiously Italian setting and at half the cost they would have been barely acceptable. But to be presented as the genuine, home-made Italian article, I think not!

For us it was a great dissapointment that the Italian experience ended at the kitchen door.

We went here as a table of six on bank holiday Sunday, the restaurant was relatively busy and there only seemed to be one waiter.
This didn't seem to make a difference we had great service and really good food. Would definitely go back.
